Honor Magic Vs Teardown Reveals New Gapless Hinge Design Ahead of MWC 2023
The Honor Magic Vs foldable phone will be a highly anticipated reveal at MWC 2023 in Barcelona later this month, and a new teardown video has given a glimpse of the phone’s sexy new hinge design.
The new foldable phone from Huawei’s offshoot, which first debuted in November and goes on sale this year, aims to solve the biggest design problem foldable phones have faced so far.
Namely, this huge gap through which you can look when the device is in the folded position. We’ve seen this on devices like the Galaxy Z Fold series. It’s not the biggest deal in the world, but it looks messy.
The Honor Magic Vs showcases this trend with a new gearless hinge that debuted a “gapless” design that makes it look like the phone is actually folded in half with both sides of the display meeting in the middle. The space saving also means that there is a 5000 mAh battery on board.
The company says it has “revolutionized” hinge technology to implement this new technology, drastically reducing the number of components used compared to the Magic V. Now, ahead of MWC 2023, Honor has hired teardown experts from JerryRigEverything to disassemble the phone and show off the this new loop. You can watch the video below:
“The Honor Magic Vs ultra-light gearless hinge, built using the industry’s first one-piece casting processing technology, greatly reduces the number of supporting structure components used in the hinge from 92 to 4, providing a lightweight hinge while providing adequate rotation. “, the company said in a statement.
“The Honor Magic Vs hinge gracefully folds to boast a gap-free design, solving another problem that other competing foldable smartphones on the market have yet to solve. When folded, no holes are visible, and the gap-free design not only gives the device a premium look, but also makes it thinner.”
We are going to get to know Honor Magic Vs at the Barcelona showroom after the company’s press conference on February 27th. This promises to be one of the most exciting foldable phones of 2023. Can he challenge Samsung’s dominance?
